Chapter 6.2 The Charm Offensive

I only have just over two weeks left before baby makes an appearance, scary how close it is getting.  Now that I am on maternity leave I am trying to get some updates out as I don’t know how much time I will have after the birth.

Anyway, enough about me.  Last time Rickon took the reigns and the spares moved out.  Rickon went on a spouse hunt and met the lovely Starla.  Oh and I began giving the house it’s lilac and turquoise makeover.

Screenshot-2

I hate it when couples don’t get along after I stop controlling them 😦 I had to laugh at Susan accusing Max of being insane when she is also insane!

Screenshot-3

I seperated them as I realised I hadn’t started on the portraits yet.  Hmm, I have a feeling this one is not going to look right.

Susan: How about you wait until I have finished before judging my work.

Screenshot-4

Susan isn’t the only one being creative.  Rickon is studying fashion concepts on the drafting table as he has yet to actually start his stylist job

Screenshot-6

He is also the first to find the tepanyaki grill I added to the kitchen.

Screenshot-7

Koi: My time has come, Lucky I’ll be with you again soon.

😥

Is anyone else amused that someone named Koi died near water?

Screenshot-10

Nice bit of long distance reaping by death here.

Death: Well excuse me for trying something different.

Screenshot-12

Rickon: No grandma! 😥

Death: I don’t think this is working.

Screenshot-14

Death: Don’t worry about moving, I’ll come to you.

Koi: Good, I’m not used to this floating lark yet anyway.

Screenshot-16

Koi doesn’t make a fuss and shakes death’s hand before jumping into the tombstone.

Screenshot-17

Koi joins Lucky in the crypt.  Hope you haunt us soon!

Screenshot-18

I hate the mourning that follows so Rickon goes around with the moodlet manager making everyone happy again.

Screenshot-19

Starla has a hard day at work and looses me points when she leaves off.  -5

Note: She was already in the military career when she entered the household so I let her keep it.

Screenshot-20

SEYMOUR!

Susan: Don’t worry he doesn’t eat meat.

Very true, he spits out everyone he eats.

Screenshot-25

Right time to get these to married, I want to pop some babies out soon. Rickon chose a nice romantic location to propose didn’t he?

Rickon: The location doesn’t matter when the person is perfect. ❤

Screenshot-28

Rickon: Hi I want to get married before my fiance changes her mind.  Get your butts over here now.

Screenshot-31

Yup first one was too dark, this one looks better.

Screenshot-32

Jacklyn: Ew a ghost.

Mulberry: Have you looked in a mirror lately?

Screenshot-47

Just eat someone already otherwise what is the point of keeping you.

Screenshot-49

Dani: Charming he invites us over for his wedding and he’s alseep.

Eddard: *impales self on door*

Screenshot-50

The woman behind Viserys is Starla’s mother Airdale who is now an elder.  The man walking across the front lawn is Starla’s older brother Kraig.

Screenshot-51

The last guest to arrive is the father of the bride, Rhamnus.  He and Airdale broke up but I can’t remember he is with now.

Screenshot-54

WOW some guests actually found the chairs!

Screenshot-55

Shame not everyone remembered how to use chairs.  I had wanted to set up the wedding on the beach but the slope was too steep.   Still what could better than a view like that.

Screenshot-58

I present to you the new Mr and Mrs Mendoza.  Rice throwing comences and amazingly no one got stuck!

Screenshot-60

Much attention is paid to the cake cutting.

Screenshot-62

I forgot Rhamnus is a coward.  He fainted when he remembered Max is a werewolf! 😀

Screenshot-63

Susan: OK who’s next?

Screenshot-64

Oh Susan. -5

Screenshot-65

There is nothing creepy about watching your daughter make out with her new husband.

Airdale: I’m outta here, that just reminds me why I left him.

Rhamnus: I just want to make sure he isn’t going to hurt my baby girl.

Screenshot-66

The newly weds waste no time in consummating their union.  Is that a lullaby I hear? 😉

Screenshot-67

Rickon: Does he know the party’s over?

Rhamnus hung around long after the other guests left and showed off his dance moves.

Screenshot-68

Starla retreats to the newly decorated basement (Which I forgot to take photos off) and is the first to find the juice keg.  Not sure you should be drinking sweetie.

Starla: Why not?

You know what I’ll let you find out on your own.

Screenshot-71

Mulberry whips out a sketch pad I didn’t know she had.  I’m sure the laundry basket will make an exicting subject.

Mulberry: Got to start somewhere.

Screenshot-72

Starla starts her charm offensive on the rest of the family.

Starla: Oh my plumbobs you have got to be the first werewolf I’ve met with no brains.

Max: Don’t make me angry girl.

Screenshot-73

With Rickon’s portrait down Starla is next.  This looks promising.

Screenshot-75

I had wanted to get a big dog but only little ones were available so I caved and got a cat.  This is Beast.

Beast: Point me to the counters, I’m sleepy.

This cat like my cat choses not to use the nice catbed I brought him.

This is probably a good time to reveal the naming theme for this generation.  Should be kind of obvious given the cat’s name but the theme this time is X-men.

This little guy is named after the big blue guy.

Bookish_Beast

Screenshot-76

Ooh this is good, very good! 😀

Starla: Not from this angle.

Screenshot-78

Rhamnus left the house in style at 3am the morning after the party had ended! XD

Screenshot-79

Yes I got a jellybean bush.

Rickon: AHH that’s got a kick!

Screenshot-80

Rickon: Hey there little guy. ❤

Beast: Got any treats in that hand?

Screenshot-81

Nope too dark, do it again.

Susan: Can’t you see I’m in mourning here.

Rickon get over here with that moodlet manager.

Screenshot-82

Rickon: You didn’t say this family would be so much hard work.

They’re a bunch of idiots what did you expect?

Screenshot-83

Well not complete idiots.  Starla managed to make some waffles without burning them.

Screenshot-84

Rickon actually has his first styling job and it’s his sister Dani.  She wanted a lot of stuff!

Screenshot-85

Rickon: My work is done.

Dani: What have you done to me! 😡

Well I liked it.

Chapter 6.1 My Time to Shine

Hi, how are we all?

This is what I am listening to at the moment.  An oldie but a goodie! XD I love it!

Last time saw the last chapter of generation 5.  Susan completed her LTW, there was a party for the quads birthday (which included a fire) and we met a potential spouse for Rickon.

Since it’s a new generation lets meet our new TH.  I am so pleased to have another male TH.  The stylist career is going to be such fun!

Welcome card

Rickon: It’s my time to shine!

Whatever I just what you to pass on that hair to your offspring.

gen 6 (1)

First thing to do is kick out the spares.  Bye guys!

Ayra: I really need to pee.

Then get out before you loose me any more points.

gen 6 (2)

Never mind Max already took care of that.  -5

gen 6 (7)

Graduation blah blah blah

gen 6 (8)

After graduation I sent Rickon to this cute little cafe for a date with Rebecca.  He introduces himself to the ladies already here.  This is Keeshonden (I think). I sure Tam will correct me if I have it wrong!

gen 6 (9)

He also met Pom here.  While they are both great they are also too old which is a shame as I love Pom’s hair colour.  (Plan starts to form in head)

Rickon: Something tells me I don’t want to know what you are thinking.

Screenshot-46

Long story short Rebecca stood Rickon up, twice!! Feeling a little down Rickon heads over to one of the beachfront bars.  I think its called The Luminous Bar.  There he ran into childhood friend Starla.  Starla is the daughter of Rhamnus & Airdale Winters.  She is really pretty with a lovely eye colour, the only issue is she still a teen.  She ran off before I could fix that problem

Screenshot-47

Later on the way home…

Rickon: I have this weird feeling I’m being followed.

Starla: He smells good ❤

Screenshot-48

I managed to age her to a YA using master controller and gave her a quick makeover.

Screenshot-49

Back home the remaining family are being mostly boring by sleeping.  Koi is the only one up.  I took this to show she does move away from the rocking chair at times.

Koi: I need to get past this level.  Hush up.

Screenshot-50

Rickon invites Starla inside and turns on the charm.

Rickon: You look like a sexy vegetable. ❤

Yeah really smooth.

Screenshot-52

Rickon: I got you pink flowers ❤

Starla: Thanks.

Screenshot-53

Guess it worked, first kiss!

Screenshot-54

And a romantic selfie, cute.

Screenshot-55

Meanwhile Mulberry is settling back into the household by scaring anyone and everyone. Today’s lucky victim is Susan who is looking lovely in her new formal wear.

Screenshot-56

Dip Kiss FTW!

Screenshot-57

Oh dear we have a slight setback.  Turns out Starla is Mean Spirited.  This just makes me want her in the family more.  She would spice things up with that trait!

On another note, everytime I look at this picture I keep thinking of this! XD  (more the song than the video)

Just thought I’d share that!

Screenshot-58

Ooh ghosts can paint.

Screenshot-59

Just added because it’s cute

Screenshot-60

Susan continues to be awesome even though she is no longer under me control.

Screenshot-63

Rickon had a wish to buy an elixer so I sent him to the consignment store.  He ran into some of his siblings while there, doesn’t he look thrilled to see them.

Screenshot-64

Max: So I read online that the town bridge is going to disappear in mysterious fog.

Mulberry: Yeah because if it’s online it has to be true.

Screenshot-66

Seymour! Don’t you dare eat her.

Luckily he spat her out again.

Screenshot-71

Short smustle intermission.

Screenshot-73

Rickon invited Starla over again.  He is smitten with her, half of his wishes are for her.  I fullfilled a couple by making her his girfriend and moving her in.

Screenshot-74

I gave her a better makeover.  She’s so pretty. ❤ I love her eyes. This is her outdoor wear btw.

Screenshot

Starla: Something in this house stinks.

Koi: Should I tell her or do you want to?

This is Starla’s everyday wear.  Her fav colour is turquoise.

Screenshot-3

The dog gnomes seem to be multiplying, we now have 3.

Rickon: Can we get a real doggy?

We’ll see.

Rickon: 😀

Screenshot-7

Koi remembered we have an ocean behind the house.

Screenshot-9

Starla meanwhile found the firepit.  Not sure your bikini is the best attire though.

Starla: I beg to differ, this is a beach.

Good point.

Screenshot-10

Bonehilda is back and being useful for once! Also early peak at house renovations.

Screenshot-11

Shreddies: Between you and me Cherrios, something stinks!

Cherrios: XD

Screenshot-12

Mulberry: Your lucky Rickon only mentioned vegetables.  When my brother Melon met his wife Magrat he had this strange obsession with rockets.

Please don’t bring that up again.

Susan: The poor girl doesn’t need to know about Grandpa’s rocket obsession.

Finally I will finish with first of the renovations.  I have only done the ground floor so far. I didn’t actually spend a lot on this.  Most of the furniture is the same just recoloured.

Screenshot-16

New lounge where the old kitchen was.

Screenshot-17

New kitchen which will hopefully be better for taking photos at birthdays.

Screenshot-19

Study.  I haven’t done the outside of the bathroom yet which is why they are not pictured.

Screenshot-15

Long shot of main living, dining, kitchen area as I am proud of how well it turned out. 😀  I am actually surprised how well the colours lilac and turquoise work together.

See you next time for a wedding and possibly a baby.
